    Malaria (mah-LARE-ee-ah) What is malaria?
    Malaria is a serious, sometimes fatal, disease caused by a parasite. There are four kinds of malaria that can infect humans: Plasmodium falciparum (plaz-MO-dee-um fal-SIP-a-rum) , P. vivax (VI-vacks), P. ovale (o-VOL-ley), and P. malariae (ma-LER-ee-aa). Where does malaria occur? Malaria occurs in over 100 countries and territories. More than 40% of the people in the world are at risk. Large areas of Central and South America, Hispaniola (Haiti and the Dominican Republic), Africa, the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and Oceania are considered malaria-risk areas (an area of the world that has malaria). How common is malaria?

    History of Plasmodium Parasites
    Malaria parasites have been with us since the dawn of time. They probably originated in Africa (along with mankind) and fossils of mosquitoes up to 30 million years old show that the vector for malaria was present well before the earliest history. The Plasmodium parasites are highly specific, with man as the only vertebrate host and Anopheles mosquitoes as the vectors. This specificity of the parasites also points towards a long and adaptive relationship with our species. At present, at least 300,000,000 people are affected by malaria globally, and there are between 1,000,000 and 1,500,000 malaria deaths per year . Malaria is generally endemic in the tropics, with extensions into the subtropics. Malaria in travellers arriving by air is now an important cause of death in non-malarious areas, and this is not helped by the common ignorance or indifference of travellers to prophylaxis. Distribution varies greatly from country to country, and within the counties themselves, as the flight range of the vector from a suitable habitat is fortunately limited to a maximum of 2 miles, not taking account of prevailing wind etc. The map indicates current distribution of indigenous malaria according to WHO: In 1990, 80% of cases were in Africa, with the remainder clustered in nine countries: India, Brazil, Afghanistan, Sri-Lanka, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia and China. Current data for Africa is unavailable. The disease is endemic in 91 countries currently, with small pockets of transmission in a further eight. Plasmodium falciparum is the predominant species, with 120,000,000 new cases and up to 1,000,000 deaths per year globally. It is the Plasmodium falciparum species which has given rise to the formidable drug resistant strains emerging in Asia. In 1989, WHO declared malaria control to be a global priority due to the worsening situation, and in 1993, the World Health Assembly urged member states and WHO to increase control efforts.

    HISTORY OF malaria. malaria is a protozoal disease transmitted thedestination airport. WORLD DISTRIBUTION OF malaria. While it was
    Malaria is a protozoal disease transmitted by the Anopheles mosquito, caused by minute parasitic protozoa of the genus Plasmodium, which infect human and insect hosts alternatively. It is a very old disease and prehistoric man is thought to have suffered from malaria. It probably originated in Africa and accompanied human migration to the Mediterranean shores, India and South East Asia. In the past it used to be common in the marshy areas around Rome and the name is derived from the Italian, (mal-aria) or "bad air"; it was also known as Roman fever. Today some 500 hundred million people in Africa, India, South East Asia and South America are exposed to endemic malaria and it is estimated to cause two and a half million deaths annually, one million of which are children. Fishermen and traders, long before British colonisation, probably introduced the disease into northern Australia and in the past malaria was not uncommon in the northern parts of the country. In Western Australia an explosive outbreak of falciparum malaria occurred at Fitzroy Crossing in 1934 which at first was mistaken for influenza and resulted in 165 deaths. WHO declared Australia free of malaria in 1981, however since that time 9 patients have contracted locally acquired malaria. The so called "airport malaria" has become a problem in recent years. A publican working in an establishment close to London's Heathrow Airport became acutely ill and was found to be suffering from falciparum malaria, he had never been out of the country. A lady driving her car past the same airport became ill with malaria although she too had never been out of the country. Four workers unloading a cargo plane at Amsterdam airport became infected with malaria. It is assumed that infected mosquitoes were carried on planes from Africa and released at the destination airport.
